Former principal of Merivale School and current Labour List MP based in Tauranga, Jan Tinetti will be speaking in Tauranga in September as part of the Suffrage 125 celebrations.
Jan will take part in a discussion moderated by Tracey Rudduck-Gudsell. After her talk, she will spend time answering questions from the floor.
This event is hosted by the Suffrage 125 Tauranga Committee. 2018 marks the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand. On 19 September 1893 the Electoral Act was signed into law, giving all women in New Zealand the right to vote.
Jan passionately believes everyone should have equal opportunity to succeed in life. Throughout her career in education, she has fiercely advocated at a national level for equal educational opportunities. Jan believes that all New Zealanders, regardless of their background, deserve the opportunity to be the best they can be.
Meet and greet from 5:30pm.
When: 6.00pm on Wednesday 19 September. We anticipate the event will be finished by 7.30pm.
The event is free, but bookings are essential. Tickets must be presented on the night.
